11 Freunde (German for 11 friends) is a monthly German sports magazine.[1]

The magazine was founded in 2000[2] by Reinaldo Coddou H. and Philipp Köster. Köster is also its editor-in-chief.[2] It is published monthly in Berlin.

The magazine sees itself within the tradition of english footballing magzines like When Saturday Comes, or the German "Der tödliche Pass". Also approaching football from a more intellectual perspective in the german speaking area are the newer magazines ballesterer fm, Zwölf, Transparent, and Null Acht.

The magazine's name was inspired by a quote from a football tactics book by Richard Girulatis (1920): "Elf (11) Freunde müsst ihr sein, wenn ihr Siege wollt erringen", which can be translated as if you want to win, you have to be eleven friends.

Since 2010 a jury elects the best footballing actors every year. Player, manager, coaching team, newcomer, character, referee, fan initiaive of the year.


Since 2009 an enclosure for women football is made, 11 Freundinnen.

Since 2010 the magazine elects the best footballing actors. Player, manager, coach, newcomer, character.

Since 2017 it elects coaching team of the year, instead of coach of the year. Since 2017 the referee of the year is elected.
